Heya, I'm currently doing some research on purchasing a pair of Alpinestars SMX-Plus boots for my BF's birthday in Dec and just wanted to get some advice. I've had a look at some US sites, one that was recommended on an old thread doesn't ship to Aus anymore and another I emailed and phoned who were rather unhelpful and somewhat rude. The best price I found on a US site (www.newenough.com) was $US252, which works out to be $AUD339, but then with shipping is between $AUD400 - $441. Since, I've found the boots for $AUD449 on motogear.com.au so it doesn't seem worth getting them from the US, especially since it'd be a hassle if anything went wrong with the shipping. If anyone has any helpful advice, i'd be very greatful. Thanks a bunch!
